Elsevier ScienceDirect Health & Life Sciences

Review by CCL-EAR Committee

ScienceDirect Health & Life Sciences, a product offered by Elsevier is a collection of high quality, full-text peer-reviewed research journals. Community Colleges requiring in-depth coverage of science titles for transfer-level academic coursework are unlikely to find a comparable package elsewhere.

The database may not meet the needs of community college students who may be inexperienced database serchers. Several idiosyncrasies associated with the interface may frustrate even the most experienced searcher.
